A CSR-compliant Summer in Le Havre 2018
A Summer in Le Havre 2018 also addresses environmental, social and ethical issues. The festival carefully minimizes its ecological footprint before, during and after the event. For example, Suspended in Time by Chevalvert, the Hanging Gardens installation, is equipped with energy-saving LEDs. Many action plans have been implemented to promote artistic and cultural education, outreach and professional integration, and let Le Havre residents contribute to the organization of the event. For Colours on the Beach, graphic designer Karel Martens has once again used the integration workshop of AHAPS (a local association) to paint the beach cabins.
MediAction was set up in 2016 to meet the needs for hosting and coordinating A Summer in Le Havre 2017 and the 500th anniversary celebrations of Le Havre and is a state-approved Job Integration Workshop. With 13 integration employees trained to coordinate the event, welcome and communicate, their team is ready to guide, inform visitors, and provide information on the different must-see sites. Trained and managed by Le Havre’s MARC association, cultural mediators are also available right through the summer, by some of the exhibits on the itineraries. Feel free to ask them any questions!
